People Skills | Week 5: How to Say Hard Things

It’s 2019 and we’re as bad as we have ever been when it comes to disagreeing with the people we love. We’ve seen friendships dissolve over invites to baby showers, political lines and even TV shows. We all have the capability to have hard convos that help us grow, we just need the right skills to do so.

Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...

Welcome to the Chaser–a few questions after the weekend service to start conversations. If this is your first time in a group, or your group has new members, take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Two truths and a lie is always a good place to start.

  1. How do you rank as a doomsday prepper? If today was the start of a robot, zombie apocalypse, how would you survive?

  2. Time warp, incoming. After hearing the message, what do you think of this verse Kyle shared? How does it relate to “the scratch?

  3. Read this scripture out loud. There’s a lot in there. It’s a picture of the end. (And the beginning.) What jumps out to you?

  4. What is something in your life that you believe is at, or near, the end? How can we look beyond that end to The End–to Jesus?

  5. Why did Jesus die for each one of us? What does it mean to be a Father who would sacrifice everything for his children?

More from the Weekend

Grab paper and write Dullness, Depth, Driveness and Death across the top. Think through the friendship in your life and put them in one of these categories. Remember, there’s not a perfect mix. But if you’re missing some names in the Depth category, take some steps to pull some relationships out of Dullness, or Drivenness. (And maybe tell Death to take a hike.)
